Collaborative online workshops now available

So excited to be launching these fortnightly Zoom workshops with Edinburgh artist and teacher Cassandra Harrison.

With Covid-19 stopping all my outdoor events I have had to stop all walking workshops until later in the year. However to keep everyone being creative I have started running online workshops which you can join in on from the comfort of your own home.

Cassandra Harrison is a well known Edinburgh artist and teacher and together we will be capturing urban scenes using various mediums and techniques. The first one is on Tuesday 4th August 6-7.15pm where we will be looking at perspectives.

Follow the link to book this limited class for just £10 (£7.50 concessions). You will also find more details about our future sessions and a list of a few materials for you to get ready prior to Tuesday evening.

We will have QnA time for you to ask any questions about our work and also have some special guests dropping in on some of the sessions.

Please share and we look forward to seeing you there.


Online workshops in June

This month I am joining Cassandra Harrison to bring you a three session workshop online. Whilst we may not be drawing outside as much as usual why not join us once a week for an hour of online creativity. 

Cassandra Harrison is an artist and teacher who creates beautiful bright and colour street scenes. Together we will walk you through creating some art in your own home, learning a few tips which you can then, once allowed, take outdoors to capture the world around you.

You’ll learn drawing, painting and mixed media techniques and the first session starts on Monday 15th June when Cassandra will introduce you to Urban Sketching and line work. I will take the second session on June 22nd where we will look at perspectives and adding detail and watercolour to your drawings. Then during the final session on June 29th Cassandra will help bring all you have learned into a piece which also uses oil pastels to add another dimension. 

This collaboration is sure to ignite creativity and experimentation in your art and is ideal for both professionals and absolute beginners. For me I find seeing how another artist works fascinating and trying new materials or a new way of using those materials can be very beneficial to my own process. 

This is the first online workshop for me and I am so excited about it, and very thankful to Cassandra for sharing her workshop and I look forward to developing this partnership in the future, and sharing more of my process with you. 

Find out more and book for either the whole session or a particular day via the link below, and I look forward to seeing you online!
